Sucralose was approved in Canada in 1991 and then in 1998 in the U.S., where it was sold under the name «Splend». Prior to that sucralose in 13 years took more than a hundred of toxicity tests, which revealed no carcinogenic or adverse effects on reproductive function, nervous system, or genetics.
Sucralose is an artificial sweetener which has zero calorie, does not cause insulin boost, six hundred times sweeter than sugar and twice sweeter than Saccharin. In the current era when people are obsessed by low-calorie foods, sucralose provide us with the promise of enjoying sugary foods without the fear of gaining weight. We all love ice creams, cakes, muffins, sodas, chocolate bars and lots of other sweet foods. Eliminating them from our diets so that we can keep our body in shape is not something to be fond of. When the chocolate manufacturers, soda manufacturers and bakers use sucralose in their products, it is like we are now allowed to fulfill our food cravings.
Every year, the use of sucralose in various food products increased by 10%, it has begun replacing the popularity of aspartame as sugar substitute. The FDA have stated that sucralose does not pose any carcinogenic, neurological or reproductive risks to human. However, there are reported cases of sucralose side effects.
